Hornelen Via Ferrata (Eagle`s Side)

The Eagle’s Side offers a nice hike on the shore, as well as a short section of Via Ferrata in the lower part of the facility. Depending on your level, it is possible to adapt the hike to involve more/less climbing or to continue up to Smalsarhuken.

Eagle’s Side is our shortest trip, and is an introduction wall with around 80 meters
of cable. You get to test and feel how the equipment works, tried some climbing
and challenged gravity. Here you are enjoying nice climbing and nature, before
taking the returnpath back. Depending on your level, it is possible to adapt the hike
to involve more/less climbing or to continue up to Smalsarhuken.If you have
booked the Wall of Witches, you will also get to climb the Eagle’s Side.
Afterwards, you follow the returnpath back basecamp. This path is an adventure in
itself, following a steep deer path down to the fjord. This trip takes about 3 hours
from start to finish. A perfect timeframe to shake loose on your way to or from
